UPDATED! A successful athletics and tennis School Games
Sunday 7th July: our athletics and tennis team, consisting of children from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6, contested the final of the Lincolnshire School Games. Having won the local tournament earlier in February, this was the grand finale; the children were representing the Coastal District and would face the champions from each Lincolnshire region to try and claim the county titles.
Having met on Louth Road at the early time of 7:45, we travelled together to Meres Leisure Centre in Grantham. Surprisingly the children were wide awake and the bus was ‘alive’ for such an early time!
In athletics, the children took part in a range of track and field events. The children performed admirably in each of their events, competing with positivity and a smile on their faces. Their achievements included several individual and relay wins, and many personal bests! After a long day of gruelling competition, the children awaited the results. After beating off some high level competition, the team placed second overall to collect silver medals! This fantastic achievement means that they are the second best athletics team in the county – a truly remarkable achievement!
We are so proud of each and every athlete for their determination and display of sporting talent. They have dedicated themselves every week to practice their skills and improve their performance levels in preparation for the final. They really do deserve their success! We hope that this is a spring board for many of the team to pursue their interest in the world of athletics and to open new doors for children who are coming through the school.
Athletics Team Girls: Brooke, Sky, Emily, Jasmine, Alex, Connie, Isobel (all Y6), Sophie (Y5), Jess and Eleanor (both Y4)
Athletics Team Boys: Rowan, Redford, Daniel, Declan, Turner, Joseph (all Y6), Noah, Reece, Toby and George (all Y5)
In tennis, each team member played well and achieved individual wins. After results were collated, the team played in a 5th vs 6th place play-off. They all won their individual matches and achieved 5th place overall. The team also received a trophy for 'Best Sporting Attitude' - a fantastic accolade! Again, this bodes well for the future as we search for more tennis stars in Years 3 and 4 to enter next year’s competition.
Well done to every tennis player - you showed fantastic skills and spirit in each match to compete for every point. Also, we would like to say thank you to Miss Boston who gave up her time to coach the tennis team on the day.
Tennis Team: Charlie (Y4), Owen (Y4), Jessie (Y3) and Katherine (Y3)
Finally, we would like to say a big thank you to all the wonderful parents who came to support, it felt like a home crowd - you gave the children huge confidence and helped massively to drive the teams forward!
A big well done to everybody involved!
Mr Mistry and Miss Gladding
